I'm looking for some tips and tricks on how to improve the performance of OpenOffice on my desktop. Any ideas, tutorials or articles on this? Thanks in advance!

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.
Im not using it anymore but there are some tips:
I know that it may sound generic but it helps and speeds up OpenOffice a little (i used it in v2.x and v3.0). If you find OOo too heavy, try to use GoogleDocs online (if you have broadband connection) in smaller browser window (it speeds up drawing of all elements in browser so try to use it in non-full screen).
Does your harddisk-LED burn after startup of OOorg? Then you're probably depending on swap, which is always slow. Buy more RAM if possible.
